SOCIAL SCIENTIST SERIES
The QIU Communication faculty along with the Foundation in Arts programme organised the Social Scientist Series where communication professionals were invited to present on their experiences in various communication related positions. They shared their experiences of the Malaysian media landscape, freedom of speech and journalistic ethics. Students were invited to ask questions and contribute as the talk went along rather than saving enquires to the end which led to a spirited exchange and excellent back and forth dialogue.
